insolvent. the banks in cyprus are huge, eight times the size of the economy. consider that here in the united states. our banking system is roughly one-time the size of our economy. what we're waiting to see next are they going to get this through parliament and get it done? it is so controversial they're trying to find out different ways to make it less controversial. impose the tax on larger shareholders to a much greater degree. it was originally 9.9% and you go to 12%. if you didn't want to tax the small guys at all you'd have to go to 15% or 16%. this is the scene when the president walked into the palace headquarters. there were people there with no written on their hand and this says merkel stole our money. keep in mind, european union will still give them 10 billion euros and they were trying to come up to reduce the original size from 17 billion euros. the other thing to keep in mind, by taxing depositors they're taxing a lot of foreigners and a lot of russians who had kept their money. the thing is will the rest of europe, will small depositors across the rest of europe l

market and the economy seems to be turning around and it is the great lesson of being able to deal with tremendous adversity. irish people are much tougher than people realize all of the way back from 1847 when the british cut them off. >> take a look at colgate palmolive. you had mentioned the downgrade on valuation concerns and the stock is down 1%, but this tells an interesting tale of the markets as well where people are looking at best buy and bank of america for performance. they continue to pile into some of these stocks. >> take a look at the former cio of j.p. morgan making her way through the halls getting set to testify about the london rail losses. >> 50 interviews and 90,000 documents and essentially alleging today that the bank hid losses as far back as january 2012, and ignored multiple warnings and ignored metrics and that even jamie dimon withheld information temporarily regarding the whale loss. >> the conclusions of the committee do not read well. another reminder certainly, when you revisit this and you look at the fact pattern or at least how the events went from le

. >> there are two economies here. kb homes, lennar, sherwin williams, whirlpool. there is the economy defined by fedex, by caterpillar and this morning by yorele cal. i was on the call last night. the cisco downgrade today. this dichotomy is allowing i think bernanke to not have to taper off. at the same time it calls into question how weak is that international market. seems very weak. >> did we get largely what we wanted from the fed yesterday? there were no big surprises within that. >> no. i think that was the point to not have any big surprises. i think there was a poignant moment yesterday that i think wasn't talked about enough where someone asked imputedly, i felt, because ben bernanke deserves better -- do you know anybody that's unemployed? do you note price of a gallon of milk? he came back, yes, i have a relative on unemployment. he's going to get unemployment down then we'll talk about tapering. until then we are playing a parlor game with the fed. i believe bernanke when he says these things. >> there's no reason to believe the fed is going to start pulling back any time
